This game is a open world where there are different sorts of survival the player can choose from. In minecraft, players are given the permission to do anything they want. Players are not limited to how far they can build, are how far the world can extend. Minecraft features different world that can be entered by finding portals, or building them yourself. This game revolves around placing and breaking blocks, that can encourage many young players to use their creativity. The gameplay by default is first person, but the players have the options of going to third person as well. The game is composed through rough 3D objects, where everything in the game are square shaped.
The players are given the option to name the world to whatever they want, the setting for world name is called “New World.” When players first load up their worlds, they will spawn on a surface on a random biome. Players can walk around as freely as they want, with a time cycle that has a day and night. A cycle through the time is 20 minutes, 10 minutes for day, and 10 minutes for night. Mobs, also known as animals, are placed randomly throughout the surface of the world on grass. Most passive mobs drop useful items such as food, wool, and leather. Passive mobs will not attack the player and will run if attacked by. Hostile mobs, can hurt players from different ranges and each mob has a special ability. Mob spawning is depended on the difficulty the player set it to.
There are different game modes in the game, survival, creative, and adventure mode. Survival, is for players that hunt and survive, players are given nothing when they spawn, and can break different blocks with a given amount of time. Players have hearts, and if it reaches 0, the player will die. In creative, the player can fly around and can choose any block or item of their choice and spawn it in. Players in creative have no hearts, opening them from doing anything dangerous in the game. They also have no hunger, and so they can also run around, not having to worry about food. In adventure mode, players aren’t give the permission to break almost all of the blocks, and some of the blocks the player can break, it won’t give the item. This gamemode is mostly for adventure maps, that can be created by many people that play this game. Players can talk to each other through the text messages that can be accessed defaultly by pressing the button “T.” Players can create and run their own server, giving them the option of making it public, or making it whitelisted. Whitelisted is just similar to a private server, players aren’t allowed to join unless given permission by the owner of the server. Public is open to any person in the world, anyone can join, even without the permission. If a players does something bad, such as swearing in the chat, or if the player griefs, or loots from other players, and if the player reports the griefer to the admin or owner of the server, they can get kicked momentarily from the server, get a timely ban, or a permanent ban. Minecraft also features multiplayer, allowing players to play with each other on a server.
People can PvP ( Player vs player) with each other, which is fighting other players to the death. This is mostly for the entertainment, and for the items players drop when killed. PvP can lead to many angers and frustration, if a person gets killed with their most precious item and the other person gets it, the player who lost it can get extremely upset. So to that, PvP is mostly for people that don’t care when they lose their item.
The controls for this game is just like any other game, these controls are all by default when you download the game. “W” to move forward, “A” to move left, “S” to move back, and “D” to move right. There are also other controls that are important, such as “T” or “/” to access multiplayer chat, “Enter” to speak whatever the player has typed, “E” to access inventory, “Shift” to crouch, “Q” to throw item that the player is holding in hand, 1-9 to switch items across the hotbar, “Space” to jump, and “Esc” to access the pause menu. Players will be given the opportunity to change this anytime they wish. When a player accesses chat, they will see a small bar at the bottom of their screen, and so they can type whatever they want to, however, when you are in the chat bar, you won’t be able to access or perform any commands. Other players will not be able to see if a person is typing something in chat, but will be able to see what the player typed. When a player shifts, it shows on multiplayer that a player is crouching, crouching makes the name tag of a player hard to see, and shift prevents them from falling of a block, but shift makes the player move slower. The Inventory allows the player to see what they have collected and interact with the items as well. When throwing an item, other players will be able to see the item on the ground and can pick it up if they wish. If a player wants to switch a item from their hotbar, they need to press the keys from 1-9. There can only be up to 9 items on the hotbar, and players can change items on the hotbar with the inventory menu. The items that the player selected will be shown on screen. Almost all of the items can only be interacted with when equipped on the hand.
